The Real Deal?

What I'm wondering about Jordan Eberle is this:

Is he going to start his NHL career as more of a Sam Gagner, a Zach Parise, or a Rob Schremp?

It's clear that we want him to be the best he can be, but can he keep up with the strength of NHL forwards and d-men?

My hope is that by the time he joins the team the Oilers will have acquired more scoring strength that can complement Hemsky and as a result Eberle will be protected.

Just look at how Steve Stamkos was fed to the wolves and how Rob Schremp was broken like a horse - and realise that neither of these situations is what Oiler fans desire for their potential golden boy in Eberle.
